Correspondent Moon Dae-hyeon = Right-handed pitcher Yun Ho-sol (29), who will wear the LG Twins uniform as a free agent (FA) compensation player for the Hanwha Eagles (FA) Chae Eun-seong, is fighting well in the spring camp practice game this season. It raised expectations for performance.
On the 26th (Korean time), Yun Ho-sol took the mound as the fourth pitcher in a practice match against the Netherlands World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team held at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. On the mound in the 5th inning, he faced 5 batters and allowed 1 hit and 1 walk, but finished the inning with no runs. Yun Ho-sol, who pitched mainly with fastballs, recorded a maximum speed of 143 km.
Yun Ho-sol, who met with reporters after pitching, said, “I’m preparing well as planned. In particular, I’m trying to improve the perfection of my breaking ball, but my splitter is doing well.”
He continued, “Last year, it seems that the completion of the breaking ball was only 40 points. But now, I can give it up to 60 points.”
Yun Ho-sol is the new face of LG Mound. When LG sent away hitter Chae Eun-seong to Hanwha in the Stove League, they brought in Yun Ho-sol, a bullpen resource, as a compensation player.
Yoon Ho-sol, who graduated from Cheonan Bukil High School, joined the new team NC Dinos in 2013 after being nominated first.
His name at the time was Yun Hyeong-bae. He raised expectations enough to receive a contract payment of 600 million won, but he failed to live up to expectations, appearing in only two games in 2014. 토토사이트
In the end, he was traded for catcher Jeong Beom-mo in early 2018 and headed to Hanwha. In Hanwha, he appeared in more than 50 games each in 2021 and 2022 and recorded decent results in the bullpen.
Afterwards, Yun Ho-sol, wearing an LG uniform as a free agent reward player, took on a new challenge.
The part Yun Ho-sol is most looking forward to at LG is fall baseball. Yun Ho-sol has no postseason pitching experience. In particular, when he was active recently, Hanwha was at the bottom and had to watch other teams’ fall baseball.
However, the situation is different in LG, which is looking to win. Depending on individual and team performance, there is a possibility of a postseason mound.
Yun Ho-sol emphasized, “Both pitcher and fielder have good power. I just have to do well. I really want to help the team.”
Yun Ho-sol, who was given many opportunities during his time at Hanwha, cannot guarantee a starting position in LG, which has a lot of depth. So, the motivation is greater.
Yun Ho-sol expressed his motivation, saying, “It’s a situation where my growth is not clear, so I’m more motivated. I want to be close to perfect.”
